Woonoongoora – Lamington National Park Pt1

After Tamborine Mountain I was impatient to get into the bigger mountains but one important chore needed doing first. Dirty laundry! Ultralight backpacking means less clothes and needing to wash them more often. I have 1 jumper, 2 shirts, 2 trousers, PJs and 3 sets of underwear, that's all you need really (wearing your rain … Continue reading Woonoongoora – Lamington National Park Pt1

If I consider all the places made special for … Continue reading 1770 to Hervey Bay

So it was a pleasant surprise when I discovered a local secret, Tannum Sands. The walk/bike track all g Boyne River was equally as beautiful. I met Jan and Karl … Continue reading Week 1


In one week I will be walking the first day of the final section of The Happy Walk and I am more nervous than ever before. This leg and the distances planned for each day are almost half that of the last 3 years. Returning to backpacking is a shift back to my comfort zone. … Continue reading Nerves
